Being a part of the Alphabet Army isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, even though it looks that way on some occasions. Sure, rainbow flags, glitter, and stunning fashion may be fun to look at, but there’s so much more to the community than just that. Seeing how it is pride month, I thought it would [...]
Why Do People Think Shutting Down Isn’t Healthy?
Isn’t it funny how we thought 2020 was the worst possible year of our lives? Of course, that was until 2021 came along. And while I didn’t enjoy 2020, 2021 made my anxiety go through the roof! Yes, I had a terrible time last year too. But we’re only in May right now, and I [...]
You never really know when it can hit you. One day you’re by yourself, just having the time of your life, and then boom, out of nowhere, you’re not yourself anymore. Every little thing feels like too much and nothing at all, at the same time. It’s dark and too bright, quiet and too loud, [...]
Sitting, Waiting, Wishing
This constant state of ‘what even’ has been my favourite chore of 2020 so far! I feel like you have been my therapist more than my readers because ah shit, here we go again! Settle down, and prepare yourselves for another rant session with your favourite pessimist. When all of this first started, I remember [...]

How To Deal With Your Emotions 101?
“Stop being so emotional. It’s not a good look.” “What are you pouting about today?” “Oh! Look at Mr. or Ms I have no emotions!”. All of us at some point have either said or heard either of these phrases. But why is this even a thing? We always tend to confuse emotions and feelings, [...]
I Was Their Light
They always said the world is bright,But things seemed different,They just weren't right. I'd only ever heard of privilege,Yet some were born into it,And they'd known nothing but rage. My world was filled with nothing but darkness,And it felt like I was thrown into the depth of the world,With nothing but them as my harness. [...]

Please bear in mind that these are my opinions, and should in no way influence you. So if you’re uncomfortable with, or unable to read about sensitive topics like this, please [...]
Why You Need To Let Go?
Funky Poet has been my random virtual diary since 2013. What first started on Blogspot, gradually moved onto WordPress, and I eventually got my domain name too. But the one thing that never changed was my inconsistency! “But Simone, you’ve been so consistent with your posts lately!”. I’m just as surprised as you. I’ve never [...]
I’ve Tried So Hard
‘No more self-deprecating jokes’, I whisper in between soft sobs. For the longest time now, I have constantly made jokes about things that could be deemed controversial by many.
